Advantages Comfortable, spacious and reliable
Disadvantages Takes up a good part of a parking bay
I have found this car to be excellent. It has plenty of room, including legroom and height, for passengers, both in the back and front, and lots of boot space too. It has also been very reliable, having had no faults with the car in the 2 years I have been driving it. (The only fault I have experienced is with the CD changer which I had as an optional extra.) Economy rate is fairly good for its size, although not outstanding. The choice of colours with interiors was also a little limited.Despite its size, I found it remarkable easy to maneouver and also park. (Actually found it easier than the smaller Ford Focus I had before!) The ride is very comfortable and smooth, with little noise, and it accelerates reasonably well depending on load of course.
Back passenger tables and lights, along with a extra rear 12v power point, has been great for the children. The middle back seat also doubles as a sort of tray when you bring the back down, with a drink holder, book rack etc. Great as long as there is no one sitting in it! The side pockets, both front and back, are very spacious and hold a plethora of road maps, glasses cases etc. The utility pods on both front seats are also quite useful for the mobile etc. Front and a large rear ashtray/bin are also a boon. The glove compartment is a reasonable size and even better it is air conditioned! (you can also turn this off) Great for keeping your drink cold and stopping the boiled sweets going extra sticky in the summer.
*Front airbags for both the driver and the passenger. There is also the ability to disable the passenger airbag, which is easy to do, if you want to fit a baby seat in the front.*Anti-lock brakes
*Central Locking*Childlocks for the rear doors
*The boot will not open if you have been driving and come to a stop leaving the engine running. This prevents people stealing from your boot while you are stopped in a queue, at traffic lights etc.*Electronic anti-dazzle on the rear view mirror is a useful tool if you drive in the dark quite frequently and remember to turn it on!
Overall an excellent family car with good reliabilty, a luxurious feel to it and some useful accessories.
